First Sunday of Advent

God our Saviour,

you utter a word of promise and hope

and hasten the day of justice and freedom,

yet we live in a world forgetful of your word,

our watchfulness dulled by the cares of life.

Keep us alert. Make us attentive to your word,

ready to look on your Son when he comes with power and great glory.

Make us holy and blameless, ready to stand secure

when the day of his coming shakes the world with terror.
